Budweiser Executive Summary

The current business environment for a piece of the beer industry market is very competitive. Breweries must compete against other breweries, both large and small to remain a viable player in the sale of their beer. Budweiser is a product produced by Anheuser-Busch, an American brewery founded in St. Louis in the mid 1800’s. The intention of the following marketing plan is to not only continue to add to the legacy of Budweiser, but to re-energize the consumer’s appetite for Budweiser and increase the market share of the product. The formula for Budweiser is over 130 years old. The recipe has a unique blend of barley malt, brewer’s rice, yeast, water, and hops. These same five ingredients are what still goes into Budweiser today. We will promote how after 130 years the tried and true tradition of these five ingredients are the building blocks that give Budweiser its uncompromised flavor. In addition to the five ingredients, the seven steps in brewing Budweiser remain the same today. The seven steps are milling, mashing, straining, the brewkettle, primary fermentation, beechwood aging, and finishing (Budweiser Anheuser-Busch). Using the beechwood aging process allows more interaction between the beer and the yeast. This is the unique formulation that has propelled Budweiser into the staple beer which many others have imitated, but not quite duplicated. We will use Budweiser’s unique recipe and brewing process to market the product to our end users. The marketing plan for Budweiser will be aimed to solidify our current base of consumers, and also recapture the base of loyal Americans that embrace the spirit of Budweiser as an American icon. The primary objective is to return Budweiser…...

Starbucks is particularly proud of their commitment to maintaining quality, integrity, and great taste of coffee through the course of its growth, and coupled with that commitment is the high value placed on the employees (partners) worldwide. "We realize our people are the cornerstone of our success, and we know that their ideas, commitment and connection to our customers are truly the essential elements in the Starbucks Experience." Starbucks' value for people goes beyond the employees, however. The relationship between the strength and vitality of the communities and the success of Starbucks is highly valued: investing in communities is not only the right thing to do, it has become part of the tradition of the Starbucks culture, to help produce social,......

Nowadays, events like Super Bowl, NBA All Stars are becoming a big market of advertisments and a deep pool of winter money. Budweiser, as beer brand of the U.S. is a suitable sponsor of all beer beverage provider at the stadium.

...Marketing Plan Guidelines Ok, so this is the real deal – the synthesis of everything you’ve learned this semester. It represents a big chunk of your final grade and will probably teach more than all the chapters and multiple choice exams combined!   1. What is a marketing plan?!?!?   So, the first question is, what the heck is a marketing plan? Here’s a couple of Google definitions I found:   - -          “an integral part of the business plan stating in words and numbers how, where and to whom a business proposes to sell its product and/or services.”   - -          “details of specific tasks worked out by and for a business concerning how market research, product choice and pricing, advertising, promotion and distribution will be done.”   - -          “A Marketing Plan is a written document that details the actions necessary to achieve a specified marketing objective(s). It can be for a product or service, a brand, or a product line. It can cover one year (referred to as an annual marketing plan), or cover up to 5 years.”   Here’s my definition:   - -          “A Marketing Plan describes how you’re gonna get your product in customer’s hands.”   Of course, different projects will require different definitions, but the idea is describe how you’re going to maximize sales, fix image problems, introduce new products, battle competition, or whatever specific problem your firm is facing.   2.

It has a long history in the market, and its primary revenue source is achieved through selling tickets on its planes that offer transportation among five islands within Hawaii. It currently has a market share of 10% and an average load factor of 54.5% (percent of seats sold on each flight) Its main competitor is Hawaiian Air who has a market share of over 85% and a much higher load factor on their flights (1). Island Air does not have the resources to compete directly with Hawaiian Air for all travelers, rather through effective marketing which is outlined in this plan it will draw away travelers from Hawaiian Air thereby increasing its revenue by approximately 20 million dollars a year, or 30 million during the entirety of the marketing campaign. To achieve this increase in revenue both load factor and market share are going to be increased. The next year is an exciting time for Island Air and presents a great opportunity to implement a marketing plan that will achieve the above revenue growth.

...DEVELOPING A MARKETING PLAN General 1. The purpose of a marketing plan is to determine the current situation a company is facing and then to generate marketing strategies and tactics in response. A quality marketing plan requires a careful analysis and understanding of the firm, its resources, and its customer base. Components of a Marketing Plan 2. Although there can be different formats which can be adopted, but a suggested sequence of marketing plan is as under:- a. Executive Summary b. Current Situation c. SWOT Analysis d. Marketing Objectives e. Target Markets f. Marketing Strategies g. Marketing Tactics h. Implementation i. Evaluation and Control Executive Summary 3. The executive summary appears first on this list of components, however, it is often written last. It summarizes the report for executives to read. It should be one to two pages in length. After an executive reads this section, he or she would have a basic grasp of the entire marketing plan. This should not be a teaser designed to get someone to read the plan. Instead, highlighting the content of the marketing plan should be the intent. Current Situation 4. The current situation involves an analysis of the firm’s internal environment, its external environment, its competitors, and its customers. Before decisions can be made about the future, it is important to assess the current status and situation. 5.......

Budweiser

...In addition to losing sales to a different beverage option, Budweiser is losing market share in the U.S. beer market. At its peak in 1988, Budweiser sold 50 million barrels. In 2013, consumption was down to 16 million barrels and market share had decreased from 14.4% to 7.6% in ten years. Part of this is due to cannibalization of sales from other Budweiser products, such as Bud Light. This shows a macro change in consumer preferences, favoring options with fewer calories to help combat weight-gain. Another big reason for the decrease in sales is due to consumers switching to the craft beer market. In 2015 sales for craft breweries were estimated at 24.5 million barrels (a 13% increase since 2014) and dollar-sales were just over $22 billion (a 16% increase from 2014). These sales have given the craft brewery industry a 21% share of the beer market. This increase in sales is not coming from a single competitor. There are 4,269 breweries in operation in the U.S. as of early this year, which is the most in U.S. history. This makes the fight difficult for Budweiser, as they are fighting another trend with consumers moving away from the macro-brand that they represent to small, local breweries. Budweiser is fighting (and currently losing) a battle for consumers who are choosing to consume more local beer with a variety of flavors as opposed to the staple that Budweiser offers. All is not completely dire for Budweiser. They are still ranked as the 23rd most valuable U.S. brand......
